Harry Myers was the youngest child of David and Ida Myers. He was born 16 July 1893 or 1895 in Lubin. [1] He is the only Myers sibling not buried in Montefiore Cemetery.

I had been unable to locate Harry's burial location and was unsure of his death date until I found this photograph on JewishData, a fee website. Beth David Cemetery does not have an online index and this grave has not been indexed or recorded elsewhere (e.g., JewishGen Online World Burial Registry, Find A Grave, or Internment.net)

Harry emigrated as Herschel Meyers, an 18 year old glazier. He sailed on the Noordam from Rotterdam on 17 August 1912 and landed at the Port of New York 27 August 1912. [2]

Mollie Glickman and Harry Myers married in Brooklyn on 5 November 1916. [3] They had two children: George (born 10 July 1919) and Lillian (born 25 September 1924). [4]
